Meet Shalishah "Petey" Franklin

Posted By on Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 1:25 PM

Last November, Shalishah "Petey" Franklin was in Las Vegas visiting her mother when the two of them went thrifting.

"I saw so many things I wanted, including a huge boom box," Shalishah says. "I realized I couldn't keep all of this stuff. But more importantly, I couldn't pass up on it, either."

Instead, she decided that she wanted to open a boutique in Memphis that specializes in vintage clothing from the 1980s to now.

"Since then, I have traveled throughout the country, thrifting, digging, and seraching for amazing finds," she says.

The end result is the upcoming online boutique Strange Fruit Vintage, which will be having a launch party this Saturday, April 17th, at 7 p.m. at Mpact Memphis on South Main Street.

But here at this portal, Shalishah is going to teach us a little bit about being your unique self, defining your own style, and dancing to the beat of your own drum this week.

Would you believe this red and black tropical print is a one-piece jumper? Shalishah paired it with a grey leather belt to "wrap it all together."
